“MONEY SHOTS:” Mayweather Goes Off on De La Hoya, His Father, ESPN’s Smith

Floyd Mayweather has been a busy beaver following his around the world trek two weeks ago. Money went off on Oscar De La Hoya, his own dad, and ESPNer Stephan A. Smith on his preferred talk platform, the website Fight Hype.

Dad got hammered for speaking out of turn (“It’s gonna happen. That fight’s gonna happen. Trust me,” Floyd Mayweather Sr. told Fight HYpe about a Floyd-Manny scrap. “That fight’s definitely gonna happen. It’s a fight for the world, man, right there. It’s the biggest fight that has ever been in life, so like I said, man, that fight’s gonna happen”) and Floyd said his pops risks excommunication, out of The Money Team, and his corner, for going on record as saying he thinks a Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight will happen. “My father is totally wrong,” said the son, airing out dirty laundry in a most public fashion.

He then went a step further, and kicked a sleeping dog, the Manny-was-on-PEDs story line. “You know what’s so crazy? I just look at the situation like this, ever since Ariza left Pacquiao, he hasn’t had a knockout. What a coincidence!” he told Fight Hype. He continued: “The thing is this, some of the people that used to work with Manny Pacquiao are now working with me, so the best thing for Pacquiao to do is be quiet before he really gets exposed and I tell some things that he don’t want me to tell.” Hm, so is Alex Ariza on his payroll…is he giving secrets up from the old Pacman playbook, if that is true?

He then leveled the guns at Smith, who has been in his corner in years past. He reacted to Smith saying he thinks just maybe Floyd is a quackier, a ducker, someone who is being the avoider, the one most singular reason why a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight isn’t happening. Floyd told FH that he doesn’t five a fly eff what Smith thinks…and then spent a couple minutes showing he indeed does.

Oscar De La Hoya also went under the scrutiny microscope; Floyd calked him “disloyal,” and a “piece of excrement,” saying that Richard Schaefer built up Golden Boy, the ex fighter didn’t. Oh, and he added that the man he beat in 2007, and then worked with in varying capacities on events GBP put together for Mayeather extravaganzas is a “snake.” Mayweather talked about his next fight, in May, and the possibility that Canelo Alvarez will usurp the recent tradion of “Money in May.” He also said he’d be starting MMA promotions, which no doubt has Dana White antsy, or maybe salivating, because he could draw some buzz over to UFC if he decided to do some sort of alliance with “Money.” Then, he finished with a little nugget, that he might try and do some fights on “free CBS.” It isn’t clear if he means one of his fights, or some of the boxers under his promotional umbrella, however.

Oscar De La Hoya didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Thoughts readers? Do you see any of this as valuable intel…or merely babbling and churning, to stay in the news cycle?

Hahaha. Floyd's is gonna fire his old daddy for saying Floyd is gonna fight MP. His daddy says Floyd will whip Manny but that's not the point. Can't bring up MP without Floyd lashing out. Smith kisses Floyd's butt 99% of the time and sticks up for Floyd against everyone else on the panel he brings up that Floyd should fight MP and Floyd loses it. Hahaha. Floyd is mad at Oscar because he stopped Swiss banker,tsAH's hostile takeover of GBP. Oscar made Floyd.And Floyd makes money but he never gets the love or the respect Oscar did. Jealously. Didn't loyal Floyd demand PAC leave his long time promoter to make the fight? Poor old Floyd will be a lonely old main playing in his money bin with the average looking women he has to pay to keep his company talking about he does good bizniss. As soon as Floyd's kids tell other school kids their daddy can beat PAC Floyd will disown them and threaten them. Floyd is so insecure he has to hire Ariza and get some secrets out of the rat. How much does Pac make Ariza.? TMT has a gag order , no mentioning MP ,or banned from the gym and no TMT hats for half price. Floyd is gonna retire and will be haunted for the rest of his life for not fighting Pac. It's funny watching it.

But first! Let me say that Money May had a miniature nervous breakdown. Showtime, his pops, Stephan F. Smith and now the fired Ellerbee telling him to fight Da Manny has been more than he can bare. Money May is indeed scared syetless of Da Manny. And Ellerbee is right when he says that Money May would rather commit suicide than enter that squared jungle across the way from Da Manny/3 G. Da Manny would take Money May out to deep water and drown his bytch whining @$$. Holla at how the brain acts with Money May-like fear.

Cool video, I do those functional MRI scans. I would love to get Floyd in the scanner and have him see a video of PAC . His frontal lobe would light up like a Xmas tree and his pituitary gland would shrivel up.

No doubt! And it is a shame that so many of Money Manny's fans, fan boy and girls and groupies don't understand science -- the sweet science and fright and fear paralyzed a syet talker like Money May experiences. This Michigan inner city boy is scared syetless of the water, though pugs -- the great ones -- have always used it. There are 10 quantzillion pages and photos of pugs conquering what jacked-up and jived-up brains cannot handle. And that is literally fighting in deep waters. Then when you get in dat squared jungle, you can literally shoot 10-to-30 punches with awesome speed and stinging powerful. Da Manny would torture Money May in dat squared jungle with whup-arse science. And Money May knows it. The only water that he is getting in is the water in a jacuzzi. I best dat bytch is even scare of a whirlpool. Hehehe! Holla at how old skool boksing deep water gives you speed, power and mad endurance.

Wow Manny looks crisp and sharp in training for C.A. His footwork still looks fluent, agile and coordinated, he looks better than Floyd. Manny would give Floyd a world of trouble.

And Da Manny/3g would give Money May a severe, crushing arse thrashing. He has already severely traumatized Money May with fright. Money May doesn't want that fight. The real reason that Money May has those big uglies is that he believing somebody -- Da Manny/3g -- is always watching him.

The only thing Floyd is traumatized over is the lawsuit. Criticism can be proved invalid. Physical attacks can be met with equal or greater force. Fighter's can be out boxed and made to look like buffoons inside the squared circle.... But how do you fight a lawsuit? You can't even talk back. No earthly weapon or mammath sized goon can blast you out of the tight spot. Then You're forced to not put up resistance as someone goes deep in your pockets to the tune of seven figures. While the world points an accusing finger and laughs at your plight. Over something you thought was normal trash talk. Since when do fighters sue over that? Money May was cut deeply. Not only financially but in his pride. He feels betrayed because Oscar was man enough and smart enough not to go down with the ship of legal ramifications. Oscar humbled himself and apologized on bended knee. Publically and privately. Something which ranckles Floyd and defies his ability to comprehend by his code of ethics. He wishes to return the public humiliation he suffered. He never talks about it but it disturbs him to this very day. I think Ellerbe jumped at the chance to get Floyd some free airtime on CNN. But free air on TV slso means they are free to do and say what they want. Floyd went to a modern day version of a firing squad without even being offered as last meal as the Feminist reporter set him up and took him down as effortlessly as Floyd can land a right hand. And then she told the audience to boycott his fight. Goes down as the dumbest PR move ever. He was humiliated to the point where he canceled his remaining appearances. My advice to Floyd is .... Instead of humiliating Manny outside the ring. Pick him apart piece by piece inside the ring while he still retains enough skill to do so. Or if your scared just say your scared....like Carl Froch told Andre Ward and we can all forget about it. Yep Floyd is pretty salty about a number of things ..... You won't like him when he's salty.


-Radam G :

Lil' Floyd is serving haterrade because he is brain f*%#ed. He wants the nightmare of fighting Da Manny to go away. But it won't. And Money May is whining more than Juan Manuel Marquez. Both of them have trick, lame brains from fibbing so much and being on dat syet -- banded roids and PEDs. The powers that be changed and moved up regulated ratios for Money May usages. And Marquez hired the fallen Angel Heredia to mix him up some Grorm syet. And Marquez -- quick to turn into a pimple-filled-chested Hulkquez -- refuses to take the tests by VADA, because he will get straight busted. Money May is having classical roid rages. This is why he is going off on Big Money Oscar, his pops, his fanboy Suckarse F. Smith, Ellerbee, Da Manny and da whole nine. Dude could not beat Da Manny if you paid him. OOPS! My bad! He would get paid. So da sucka won't fight Da Manny even for pay. Fighting Da Manny won't end well for Money May. And this is truthfully what Money May believes. So it is. And that is the amazing power of your brain -- science.
->http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLqjK3ddSy0. Boksing is a sport of brains, not bullies, boneheads or bullsyeters. You bring it in da squared jungle, not your fibbing-and-bullsyeting hype-in-cyberspace hookup. Holla!


-riverside :

Floyd is having mental breakdown!! He really thinks his story, when he tells it, is Valid. It's more of Juvenile belief!! Lack of growing up and understanding. How is calling DLH a a snake? because DLH is fighting back? in my book you got no credibility at all, if you treat your own dad, the way he talk his dad down, but sure he is right, has a theory and explanation for everything he does and say.


-brownsugar :

Anthony Hopkins said...."its not my business what other people think of me,... I am what I am and I do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. It makes things easier this way" Words to live by. I dont personally think Mayweather is losing it. But if you have a problem with everybody .... Then theres nobody left when you reach the end of the road. At this late stage in his career there's not enough time to pull a Lionel Richie and do a solo act. I think he would do well by submitting to the authority of someone other than himself when it comes to training and public relations.


-michigan400 :

Floyd hires what's his face for what reason??? To learn " secrets " about Pac or so he can get some of that magic juice?? Either way its shady, juvenile and suspicious at best. Maybe the best fighter of this generation and he's so insecure he is literally on a witch hunt looking for valid reasons not to fight MP. I actually feel bad for him. The money and fame are clearly taking their toll on his already fragile mental state.

You hit it outta da park. Da dude's mental state is fragile to da maximum times some. And witch hunting to find "that (phantom) magic juice" of Da Manny got the poor soul tore up from da flo' up. I best every day he has bad chills and throw up. Holla!

When people think of Roberto Duran, they think of one of the greatest fighters of all time, they also think of " no mas", it is in the book, Hands of Stone and will be in the movie to be released next year ! If they ever write a book and make a movie of Mayweather you can be sure Pacquiao will be part of it ! Duran found some sort of redemption, Mayweather never will if he hasn't fought Pacquiao before he retires !


-brownsugar :

Mayweather is just being Mayweather....he probably will never fight Paq because of the lawsuit What history will remember is Paq getting KO'd by one of Mayweather victims. The knife cuts both ways They are two entirely different fighters I cant pity a multi millionaire with a garage full of Bugati's If he ever really needed a psychiatrist he could buy an army of shrinks. Probably more in need of religion.... But its his life. We'll soon see how his venture into the world of MMA goes. His biggest problem is finding a suitable dance partner to compete with Cotto/Alvarez.


-Froggy :

History will not remember Paq for ducking anyone !


-Radam G :

Actually getting knocked out comes with the territory. Nobody will remember or care about Da Manny getting knocked da f*-k out by full-of-dat-syet Marquez who transformed in Hulkquez anymore than they remember GOAT Ali getting knocked out by Larry Holmes, or Joe Louis getting knocked out by German Max or Sugar Ray Leonard getting knocked out by the late, great Hector Camacho, or the great Sugar Ray Robinson quitting on the stool against Joey Maxim. And/or the great Roy Jones getting kayoed by Big-mouthed Tarver. As time goes on, the fighters are remembered for pure greatness, not the naturality of the actuality of the reality. What counts is the greatest victory. The GOAT Ali is more remembered for upsetting Night Train Liston and BIG George. The Brown Bomber is more remembered for his second bout with German Max. Sugarman Robinson is remembered more for the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre, not that he lost to Jake LaMotta or quit on Joey Maxim, but he is remember for ducking Charley Burly. Sugarman Leonard is remember for his wins against Duran, Hearns and Hagler, not that he was kayoed by "Macho Time." Read the book "The Boxing Gods" by TSS's own Springs Toledo. He's telling you about greatness of fighters, not that Ezzard Charles was knocked out so many times. But he writes about how great Charley Burley was, and how SRR ducked him. In Amerkano football, there is no jive about how times that Jim Brown fumbled the ball, but how many times he got touchdowns. There is no jive about all the interceptions of Joe Montana or Bert Starr, but touchdowns that they rifled. There is no jive about how many times that Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron struck out, but how many times that they hit it outta da park. In politricks, there is no jive on how many times that George Washington lost battles against "the Redcoats" because he couldn't find his darn wooden-@$$ false teeth, but that he was a great general and the first Prez leading the Founding Fathers of the USA with lies and bullsyet. Now you know that man with wooden-@$$ teeth did chop down a cherry tree. Old no-teeth Prez G needed to gum some juice outta those cherries for nutrition purposes. Hehe! OMFG! No historian is going to single out Da Manny for getting kayoed by Hulkquez anymore than they are going to single out Uncle Roger May for getting knocked da double fudge out by Filipino-AmerKano Mestizo Rocky Lockridge. History's emphasizes that Uncle Rogers could scrap, not how many times he went to sleep. That is minor footnote syet. Hulkquez knocking out Da Manny will be a footnote of history. Nothing BIG, as Marquez and Pachaters believe and hope. Fifty, 60, 70 years from now, I will probably still be around kicking among the living, so when I get to where guys will be in death, I holla at 'cha. The excuse making for Money May, and the hating of for PacMan for wanting to kick his arse ain't gonna halt. But like Froggy hollered, "History will remember" Money May for ducking the One-Pinoy Murder Row. There is something about ducking historic murder rows. Holla!


-michigan400 :

Pac got ko'd by Marquez 1 time. He also beat him and had a draw in really great, competitive fights. If folks only remember he got dropped by a guy Floyd handled easily ( fair assesment and point of view btw) then the very next point brought up will be - "So considering that, why didnt Floyd fight him? Marquez ko'd his *** but Floyd wont allow anyone around him to even mention his name, let alone fight him?" Both are fair points of view and the only fair way it gets settled is in the ring.


-Carmine Cas :

After years of Mayweather being in the lime light, it's clear he must have crocodile skin breath. Dude puts his foot in his mouth so much and is quite the hypocrite. From racism, PED's, negotiations, "giving the fans what they want", saying Pacquiao's next during a press conference and then completely denying it. The blame for the fight not happening shouldn't be placed solely on Floyd, as the other parties had their fair share of excuses. But I think his aura of invincibility is starting to erode and people are getting sick of his bs. It's time for him to put up for shut up, even aside from the Pacquiao fight.


-amayseng :

Floyd is that annoying big mouth bully who never shut up that I punched into a hospital. Actually there were a few of those kids, his personality and b.s. fit right in with them. Floyd is a great fighter but his intelligence outside the ring, along with his tact is just lacking to the point of where he should be embarrassed. Though, he does not have the intelligence to be so.....Which is worse.

I agree michigan, I would just like to add if you look at their records reguarding common opponents I can understand why Mayweather wants nothing to do with Pacquiao !

-Radam G :

I'm riding with Lil' Floyd. The step hen a smith -- I meant Stephen A. Smith -- is a potty-breath chameleon. He's goes where the wind blows. And believes that it is power and push in his windpipe. All THAT dude does is snipe. He ought to shut da double fudge up. And he doesn't know super elitism and special abilities. He was just an athlete. And they come a dime a dozen. He was not a superjock with shock and sock. All the dude does is latently mock. We -- who can be called shuperjocks -- have his arse on lock. And he knows it. He's just as I said above -- a triple bulljiving chameleon. He ain't a late, great Howard Cosell. Cosell fought the powers of make believe and corruption. Step hen stands where he believes that the winds of the time will favor him regardless of the actuality of the reality. He would be the first one to shun Money May after a boksing loss or an unfavorable stance. Holla!

He beat him twice and draw-ed with him once. It is Da Manny 2-1-1, Marquez 0-2-1 and Hulkquez 1-0-0. Holla!

I totally agree with his De la Hoya comments. Oscar is a snake and a Judas multiplied by 10 Benedict Arnold's. Business partner treason. His sentence should be hanging by death and the rope will be the laces from a pair of old Reyes gloves. Of course I am being drastic but yea.... Oscar's a disloyal chump. Don't forget it's Oscar who started the cold war to begin with doing similar chump moves to Top Rank. The guy is a joke.

Where there is a JOKE, it is plently of SMOKE! It is all in the territory of @$$ whuppin!' By its nature, boksing is full of optical illusions and a lot of brain contusions. YUP! Big Money Oscar is a snake. But a grass snake. He ain't gonna brutally damaged. But Money May is a python. With deception and straight-up bullsyet, he will squeeze you to death. And lie to you to your last breath. Pops Joy May is a tree snake. And he will convince you to bite the forbidden fruit [Too many pugs from the Mayweather stable have showed up with dat syet in their system]. And PJM's bullsyet about being the greatest trainer ever, he loves to toot-toot. Somebody ought to kick him in da butthole with a boot. Uncle Roger May was known as the "Black Mamba" as a professional pug. But the Afrikan-Amerkano Fil-Am Mestizo Rocky Lockridge knocked him da puck out so badly that old Unc has since come up with a therapy about Pinoys having A-side Meth. WTF. And Uncle Roger want you to believe that "A-side" meth causes "bullets to be bouncing off Filipinos' @$$es." "Five hundred years ago, 'em Filipinos were walking through bullets and syet when the American soldiers were shooting at them," Uncle Roger has been quoted popping off. Uncle "Jazzy" Jeff May is smart, quiet, college educated, the sneaky Mayweather. And you know a snake is that way just before it rattles and bite your arse. Money May quickly sold suck-arse Showtime out for jiving and conniving and stage those silly "All Access" skits. When it come to Money May and everybody else, but dey momma, he is always the pot calling the kettle black. Dude ain't nothin' but a jive-@$$, lovin'-money jack. And I ain't hatin' him or fooled by him. Holla!
